  1. Getting ready for a Pirates campaign... We are watching Black Sails... There is NO WAY that those miniatures could be useful... along with some Pasta Puttanesca... The Auld Grump
  2. How about braziers? You might need to fiddle with scale, but you can also have fun with OSL painting. There's also at least one free set - The Auld Grump
  3. You may need to get/build an enclosure for it, with a heater to keep it warm - but, yes, we do know someone with athsma that keeps their printers in the garage. They were one of the first people that we knew who bought a 3D printer - and now have three in a modified wardrobe in their garage. (They currently have a Mars, a Mars 2 Pro, and a Saturn. Their CR3 FDM printer lives in the house - no fumes to worry about.) I think that they got the wardrobe at Goodwill, then mounted shelves in it. If you have a seperate room with a heater, it should work. Duncan doesn't heat the whole garage, so he needs that wardrobe in winter. I don't know what he does in high summer. The Auld Grump
  4. Maybe worth mentioning that Elegoo currently has the Mars 2 on sale for $99... A bit old, but a solid workhorse of a 3D printer. They also have the Neptune 2 for $125, if anyone is looking for an FDM printer. The Auld Grump
  5. Ah, that guy. Didn't see the pictures of his wife, but... maybe more furniture than servant? (One of the unboxing videos, in particular.) The Auld Grump
  6. Arcane Minis has an odd crowdfunder running on MMF right now. I am not providing any links, because of the commerce rule. A few years ago they had a Kickstarter for a physical product, collecting postage at that time. The project was delayed by Covid-19, during which time postage tripled. So, they are running a short campaign with 80% off some pretty big bundles. They also reached out to a bunch of their fellow creators - who added some free minis and free one month subscriptions to their Tribes to all the bundles. There are some nice models in those bundles, in aprticular the airships. Megan has christened this ship The Blofeld.... The added contributors are: The Printing Goes Ever On Mini Monster Mayhem Mammoth Factory DM-Stash Fantastic Plants & Rocks PrintYourMonsters Fantastic Portals & Effects WorldForgeMinis PrintMinis Crippled God Foundry Moonlight Minis The Auld Grump
  7. Did I miss something? I have no idea who either of you is talking about. The Auld Grump
  8. We *AHEM!* don't need any more pirates materi *KACHING!* Whoops. Mostly for the terrain and the undead pirates. Now that the latest Borderlands and the Dark Winter games have wrapped, I am once again thinking piratical thoughts. You can blame VoicePlay - https://youtu.be/vO8NEsx9m58 (With good cause, for a change - I had forgotten about this KS... and then they reminded me about my piratical interests.) The Auld Grump
  9. For mounting terrain to a base, we used a hot glue gun. The Auld Grump
  10. The natural order has been restored to the universe - One Page Rules will be back to 70% off for Patrons in February. By the way - the 'Epic Harbingers' for their Daemons? Are bloody BIG. We are printing the Lust Harbinger.... The Auld Grump
  11. You may have heard a *SMACK!* That was me face palming. An urban fantasy I was reading had someone attempt to poison the werewolf protagonist with wolfbane, while eating the same meal... because 'wolfbane is harmless to humans'... Uhm, no, really... it isn't.... Dear gods - this is something that you can find on Wikipedia.... (I highly recommend a book like Deadly Doses: A Writer's Guide to Poisons....) The Auld Grump
  12. Week continues to be odd. While I wa on the bus home, someone had a seizure on me. I held him so he wouldn't fall off the seat. Glad I was there, or at least someone was, even if it was me. Been a few decades since that last happened. The Auld Grump
  13. Or even smaller for squats. Thing is, I like those tanks better than the GW originals... But I already have a number of Not-Leman-Russ.... The Auld Grump
  14. Hey, I have met an incredibly sweet natured chihuahua.... Yeah, this guy had littleman syndrome in spades, with a fragile ego on top of it. And very, VERY proud of his own ignorance. Sad thing - he got the job because I turned it down. So, from then on he was convinced that I was going to somehow take it away from him. (Dude, I didn't WANT IT.) The Auld Grump
  15. Tpday, one of my coworkers bit a manager on his nose, hard enough that he needs stitches. And because the manager is the one that started the physical altercation, the coworker is staying, the manager is leaving. This same manager got into a physical altercation with a customer a few months ago. The manager is maybe four inches taller than Megan. He picked a fight with a tow truck driver. Who whupped the tar out of him. I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around 'bit him on the nose' - what is this, kindergarten? Not missing this manager - who seriously needs psychiatric help. The Auld Grump
  16. That is a very nice ettin, one of the best I have seen. The Auld Grump
  17. That moment when you are considering a tank for a Not-Imperial-Guard army, then realize that the all female tank crew are wearing swimsuits.... So close to being a one stop purchase for an entire army... but, well, unless Megan is intersted, I just don't see us getting an army that includes female ogryn in fishnet blouses.... (No, not showing the image.) Sign of age - it took me a while to notice the swimsuit wearing tank crew... and longer to notice the name of the line. (Pinup Corps.) The tanks - very nice. The figures, lots of variety, plenty of weapon options. But... ... ... so, danged close. The Auld Grump
  18. Just a bit of amusement - I am considering the Gamescape 3D Tribes, and ran across this in the description of their welcome box - Rescaled to fit modern Reaper Bones minis (18% Larger) The Auld Grump
  19. If you have a 3D printer, or a friend that owns one, Mammoth Factory has some rather nice hobble gobbles in this month's Patreon/Tribe. Both the hobgoblins and the 'regular' goblins might make good hobgoblins, tweaking the size of the prints. The Auld Grump
  20. To be gaining an average of 500 new subscribers, each month, for over a year, is pretty darned impressive. Good game, good minis, excellent value, and a pretty sweet discount even before adding in the bonus for reaching goals. But I'm not saying that we won't be waiting for the next bonus before adding more of their back catalog to our collection. (Finishing off the Alien Hives, for example.) The Auld Grump
  21. The streak that One Page Rules had of hitting their goals each month has finally ended, The streak lasted for well over a year, and they really should be congratulated on how long it lasted. The Auld Grump
  22. And you want to do it at least the day before the end of the month. Not as big a PItA as Loot Studio, but they do not make it exactly intuitive. On the other hand, aside from cancelling a subscription, I actually prefer Tribes to Patreon. The Auld Grump
  23. A sequel, of sorts - I have been going through her other videos, and there was one for My Mother Told Me - and she makes a comment that 'I NEED to get a coat like that'. When she did the vidieo for Skyrim, she had a coat like that.... I guess she wasn't just kidding! The Auld Grump
  24. We haven't, sorry. They also have a small (epic) scaled game in the works. If/when they do a unit creator for that, it might fit in very nicely. *** Adding a non-OPR model to my Jackals collection. Non combat. Giving them a baggage train. The Auld Grump
  25. That was how I first found his work, then threw it at Megan. From a reaction and analysis video by an opera singer - The Charismatic Voicer. (Somehow it makes me happy that an opera singer did an analysis of a cover version of Monster Mash. Later, I realized that, yes, she really is that much of a NERD! ) The Auld Grump - not complaining about nerd girls, no not at all. *EDIT* Adding link to her reaction video - https://youtu.be/zcK_Id5hcuA *EDIT* One of the things that I enjoy about the Multiple Geoffs is that each has a personality - my favorite example is White Christmas, where the Second Geoff from the Left keeps looking puzzled by things changing. (Wait, where did that Christmas tree come from? Why has my shirt changed? What's going on?)
